I just read today that the race is full! When I checked the list on-line there are only two Canadian Teams and they are both womens teams. Obviously, Sarah and I and a team from Regina. Pretty cool!
My recovery week from Chuckanut has gone fairly well. Carter and I did an easy hike on Knox Mountain Sunday morning and I could barely walk down the trails without turning my body sideways. I have taught a couple of spin class, core classes and did the run with the PACE crew on Wednesday. We were doing race pace efforts on the greenway, but I noticed as I tried to pick up the pace, my legs were dead. So I just jogged and took photos.
I am going to do a light bike ride tomorrow, hopefully with my transalpine partner, Sarah and then I am signed up for the 21k Dirty Feet Trail race on Sunday. Although I am not sure my body is up for it quite yet. Trent is going to run Carter's 2nd 5km race with him and I may join him.
I saw David on Thursday and he did some work on hips, IT bands and glutes. Today my left knee is still a bit sore though. So I will just decide the morning of and wing it. I have another 50k in two weeks which needs to take priority, so I may just end up taking photos and cheering on the PACE racers instead.
